Nanjing Zijin (Newport) Masterplan

The design concept for the exhibition build evokes a leaping coy fish playfully enjoying the quality of the water features set in the landscape. Expressed as a long pavilion the form curves and sweeps over and into the central water feature. The external treatment therefore takes on a simple layered form resembling fish scales offering rhythm, colour and lighting in a decorative and innovative arrangement. The pavilion will offer a unique signature for the entire development, viewed on arrival and creating a distinctive landmark.
